I was installing Cisco VPN client on a laptop today and after the installation whenever I tried to run it I got
Error 56: The Cisco Systems, Inc. VPN Service has not been started. Please start this service and try again.
So naturally I went to Administrative tools > Services and tried to start Cisco VPN service, but whenever i tried I got:
service on local computer started and stopped.some services stop automatically if not in use by other services or programs.
I tried reinstalling Cisco VPN client but I still got the same error. The solution that worked for me was to turn off Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)
Go to Administrative Tools > Services > right click Internet Connection Sharing and go to Properties > On General tab stop the service and change startup type from Automatic to Manual

I had to install a Cisco VPN client 5.0.07. to a Windows XP Embedded computer today and during installation I got a Files Needed message “The file ‘dneinobj.dll’ on Deterministic Network Enhancer disk is needed“.
If I would click cancel I would get a Installer Information with message “Error 27850. Unable to manage networking component. Operating system corruption may be preventing installation“.
I never got this message on any other computer when installing Cisco VPN client, so a searched a computer with an installed Cisco client on it for the named files and transferred the files from there. Besides dneinobj.dll file you might also get the same message about the files dne32x.sys, dne64x.sys, dne2000.cat, dne2000.exe, dne2000.inf, DNE2000.sys, dne2000m.cat,dne2000m.inf that they are needed.
If you get the Files needed message about any of the files listed above try this:
- Go to the computer with an installed Cisco VPN client and find the missing file on it. It’s likely going to be either in C:\Windows\System32 or C:\Program Files\Common Files\Deterministic Networks folder, you can also take the missing files from the following zip file DNE
- Copy the folders to the computer where the files are missing and when you get the Files needed message press the Browse button and select the location where you copied the files
